Positive Affirmations for You to Use the Week of January 23rd-29th

Happy Sunday!

I hope that you had a good week, and made some time this weekend for self-care, because you deserve it.

This week was… rough. Personally.

I had my intake assessment for PHP on Tuesday, and then didn’t hear back from them until I called on Friday, just to discover my insurance had refused to cover it because “it wasn’t an emergency” and I’m out of state.

Luckily we called up my insurance and explained the situation (okay… my mom did it because I was a wreck) and they agreed to cover treatment. My first day is tomorrow. Send all the positive vibes.

My mental health hasn’t been good. I spent yesterday and the day before in bed. My depression is becoming heavier and heavier, and I’m really glad to be starting treatment soon.

It feels like I’m drowning, and I’m ready to get a floatation device.

Some things that have been helping me are cuddling my mom’s new dog, Sasha, reading rom-coms, watching Monk with my mom, keeping an attainable morning routine, and walking Sasha around the neighborhood. But honestly, there are days (*cough* yesterday *cough*) when doing any of those just aren’t possible.

And on those days, I hold on to self-compassion, and remember that I haven’t even started treatment yet. I’m sick right now, and I can’t expect myself to thrive every day.

I hope these affirmations help the way you speak to yourself, the way they help me speak to myself. I always put them in the order that I’ll be using them the upcoming week (1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday, 3 is Tuesday, etc.) but please use them in whatever order/way is best for you. Take what you need, and leave the rest.

I hope you enjoy the last bit of the weekend, or if you don’t have weekends off (shout out to my fellow service workers!), I hope you prioritize finding time for self-care every day.

You are loved and worthy!

Positive Affirmations for You to Use the Week of November 7th – 13th

Hi friends!

I hope you’ve had a good couple of weeks. The last month has been kind of rough for me, and I took a break from Instagram and blogging. Unfortunately, just over two weeks ago, we had to say goodbye to our beloved family pooch, Thecla. Thecla had been part of the family since I was sixteen, and I’m so grateful to have gotten to emerge into adulthood with my sweet girl. She was so loved and is dearly missed.

The time leading up to and following her passing was extremely difficult, as we knew that she was passing, but we didn’t know when exactly, so my anxiety was on high alert for a few weeks. I also of course was grieving Thecla’s loss following her death, and because of that, I was very overwhelmed and in survival mode. But, I’m starting to see the light and it’s getting a little easier to be alive again.

With that being said, I’m back to blogging and sharing weekly affirmations! Starting today! Yay!

*Most* Sundays, I share the affirmations on here (and on Instagram!) that I will be using for the upcoming work. I share them in the order that I will be using them (1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday, 3 is Tuesday, etc.) and then share them daily on my Instagram story. Of course, I hope that you will use them in whatever way works best for you, whatever that means to you!

I hope you make sure to take some time to rest and take care of yourself today, and I’ll see you next week!

You are worthy of your love and kindness!

  1. I trust in myself.
  2. My well-being is always a priority.
  3. I am going to be okay.
  4. I am growing.
  5. Not everyone will like me, and that’s okay.
  6. I always prioritize self-care.
  7. My worth is not dependent on the appearance or size of my body.

Positive Affirmations for You to Use the Week of October 3rd – 9th

Hi friends!

Advertisements

Happy October! Since I grew up in New England, this is one of my absolute favorite times of year. The changing leaves, flavors, activities, and movies are just a few reasons why! Now that I live in Florida… I don’t get to see the leaves as often (though I will be making a trip north in two weeks and will be able to take in allllll the fall foliage, which I am thrilled about.) and the activities and food just aren’t the same when the weather is warm.

Although I love this time of year, historically, this is also when my mental health starts to go downhill. With the changing weather, and shorter days, and less sun, and pressure of the holidays and having a “good fall” and “good winter”, and wanting to do more indoor activities (crocheting and reading were made for autumn days with candles!), it is easy for my mental health to decline.

I’ve accepted that entering another depressive episode soon is a real possibility, but I’m also doing everything I can to stay mentally healthy. Obviously using my skills helps, but it doesn’t guarantee that I won’t have another depressive episode.

One of the things I do every single day for my mental health is practice positive affirmations, and at the beginning of every week, I share what affirmations I’ll be using with you!

I always share them in the order that I’ll be using them (1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday, 3 is Tuesday, etc.) but I encourage you to use them in whatever order or way best serves your needs.

I hope you all have a great week, and remember to show yourself kindness.

  1. I am proud of all my hard work.
  2. I am not ashamed of my nourishment or hunger.
  3. I treat my body with kindness and gentleness.
  4. I am stronger than my bad days.
  5. I am open to change.
  6. Every day, in every way, I am growing.
  7. I give myself the compassion I give to others.

Positive Affirmations for You to Use the Week of September 5th – 11th

Hi friends!

I hope you had a great week! I took the week off of Instagram, and decided to focus more on building and sticking to healthy routines after I kind of fell off the wagon after a hectic few months (May and June were just straight up difficult and rough, July I was out of town for most of, and similarly with August.).

But, things seem to be slowing down quite a bit (this is a very good thing for me.), and things are a little more consistent.

I am proud of myself for posting the affirmations almost every week, though! It wasn’t perfect, but choosing and sharing these affirmations with you here on the blog and on my Instagram (@KatieHasAnxiety) has really been good for my mental health, even if I’m not perfectly adhering to my routines. I hope they’ve enriched your life, as well!

Every Sunday, I share the positive affirmations that I will be using that week. I always share them in the order that I personally will be using them (1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday, 3 is Tuesday, etc.), but I encourage you to use them in whatever order or way is best for you. I personally have benefitted from practicing positive affirmations so much, and my hope in sharing these with you is that they help you, too.

Have a great week, and I’ll seek you next Sunday! Don’t forget to take some time for self-care and connection!

I’m months behind, but I’m trying to make it happen!) Here are this week’s, and I hope you find them useful.

See you next week!
